moto's prophecy is revealing itself

altho i can't talk, i can't even ferment a 1.058 oktoberfest....I wanted to pitch at 53F but my chiller wouldn't get there so i racked and placed in in my keezer. well, i then got pretty wasted and by the next morning the wort was 39F. however, i had confused which temp probe was which and thought it was at 47F so I pitched. it's up to 53F now but not doing anything.

a little off topic, ok, far off topic, but for all the Massholes out there, Tonight at Cambridge Common, there will be a Massachusetts Breweries Tap Takeover, with over 25 different brews, all from Massachusetts brewers. Come on down and have some great beer....

If there is ANYONE capable of talking out his a$$ on a forum, it's my boy Cape.

I taught him everything he knows.





Can I get a minute here? I'm gettin' all choked up.

The average between the two fermenters is about 1075 and dropping slowly. Those 'non stressed' yeasts of ours are enjoying a nice leisurely meal. Hurrying though your dinner can give you an upset tummy.

EC118 is only good for about 18% im pretty sure, and if it went from 1.2 to 1.075 its already flirting with its top end- about 16.25. I think its time to break out the good stuff (099) and lots of it, maybe rack off so the lazy stoner yeast doesn't have a bad influence on the new stuff
